What are your minor pet peeves with your Camaro

I notice on the 2010 Camaro the sun visors are just about useless, they're too small. And I usually hit my head getting in and out about 20% of the time.

What are your pet peeves. This is for information purposes, the 2010 Camaro is the best Camaro ever.

When we rented one (base 1LT), my only three peeves:
-Sun visors.
-The fairly bland interior (sorry guys; it just wasn't going it for me. Hopefully the 2LT is way better.).
-The understeer.
The last one wasn't something I couldn't adjust to though. It's just that I was going from a '98 to '10 for an hour, and with what little time I spent with it, I felt the difference in the handling.
As for my '98:
-The LOOOOOOOONG front nose while parking. I don't know how many times I've scraped the air dam/bumper on those little parking blocks/curbs/driveways.
-The LOOOOOOOONG doors. It's a real pain in the rear trying to get out in a tiny space. I'm used to it, but it's my passengers I worry about.

For both of them:
-How hard they are to keep clean.
But hey, when you're driving your car a lot, what do you expect?

It's funny, I hear this complaint all the time. The size of the sun visor only matters compared to it's rleative size to the windshield. The windshield in the Camaro isn't very tall and has a good slope, therefore the sun visors don't need to be large. I think they work fine even though I never use them.

My pet peeve would have to be the seat belt. It sits too high on my shoulder and ends up going across my neck. If I put it through the loop on the side its too low and hard to pull over my shoulder. Plus I'm afraid it will ruin the leathe ron that loop.

Pet Peeves

1. Brake Dust
2. Lunging and lurching for the first 5 minutes
3. Drink Holders

Other than those.... I love my car.

In order of irritation level...

1. Water comes in windows when driving in rain and they are open slightly. Yes, it's my DD.

2. Sun Visors. They are smaller than other cars I have had based on the ratio of visor height to windshield height. I have measured.

3. Cup holder location

4. Lack of glove box light

Of course, I try to ignore these as much as I can!

Sun Visors
Passenger seat not adjustable
His and her memory seats
no "oh crap" handle
no "fat ass" handles
no cubby holes
Cup holders in wrong place
no light in glove box
seat belts cut into neck
no vents for back seats
rather a quicksilver shifter than tap shift
tap shift feels to much like playin game

Power passenger seat and auto climate control would be nice. Oh and I wish the tach and speedo were swapped. The way I sit the steering wheel blocks redline.
